4h all right, want to get back, oh shaping u day. at least we don't have to deal with any fresh rounds of snow that will accumulate that would you have to shovel away here. looking at "skycam 3", looks little cloudy for us out here. we have certainly been stuck in some very cold air for the standards as of late. so that cloud cover isn't helping to moderate our temperatures all that much. at least compared to what you would normally find. so out over the ben franklin bridge, at least you have got pretty clear visibility. but the cloud cover and the cloud deck is out there. meanwhile, how did we do yesterday? let's look at the choice few locations, we did pick up half foot of snow down across portions of sussex county as we anticipated. 6 inches fell in selby ville after said and done, shy of five fins cape may list gets little shorter here in terms of amount, anyway, as go further north. so in children an end dollars up with 2 inches, got even less than that the further north you went. here are the flurries ukee said he saw. see they are actually igniting
and blossom withing time. not heck of a lot of moisture to work with here. this is more wind driven as a result of the wind flows turning more northwest, it is not a windy day but that is where that is coming f so no organized storm system waiting in the wings for us, nothing like, that i don't want you to worry about. that will yes don't be surprised if you see couple of snowflakes to go along with the cold air, 07 degrees in mount pocono, 26 in philly, and still only stuck into the lower teens down the shore right now so temperatures are still going to remain as a result well below average here, with that flurry out there. i would say the shore pretty much the one and only spopot that gets by without the possibility after flurry. otherwise everyone looking at some sun. just cold outside. 31 degrees at best down the shore, we should be in the upper 40's, at this time of year guys, and we don't have a prayer of even hitting the freezing mark here at this point. our next storm comes along sunday night as i mentioned earlier, looking at what may end up being pretty active week next week. vittoria, good morning. >> good morning, everyone, traveling out and about on the
majors beautiful out there. no delays to speak of. it is 4:34. still the roads are sleeping. if your traveling on 95, no delays at all schuylkill, vine all looking great. >> this shot here is interesting. so, we were talking about that breaking news story off of the top, vehicle gone into a firehouse, off harbison avenue. if you are traveling in this area, it is a very active scene around van kirk and jackson. i actually passed this when i was driving into the studio this morning, you can still get by, it is very active, though. you will see a ton of police officers, ambulance, so on, so for the, because it did happen at the firehouse there and as i have heard in the breaking news story there is part of a medical aoun at this time had smashed into into the firehouse. so if you are make that turn, right around the stretch on harbison, it is winding. so very easy to go out of control here. we will continue to keep you updated on that. if you do have to travel, in and around this area, i would definitely suggest torresdale avenue. again, it is harbison avenue between van kirk and jackson is the incident intersection. torresdale again, good
alternate. since it is still pretty quiet, not too many people on the road, you are good to travel through. that will as we take a look again, speed censors, high up into the 50's, no delays in pa jersey, delaware, beautiful, mass transit also in the clear. ukee? >> vittoria, thank you. we are learning more about a manna cured of trying to join isis and his ties to our area. few month ago abore lived at this apartment complex in dover, delaware. court records show management at the complex sued him in august for not paying rent. a source with the dover police department tells "eyewitness news" he worked at a cell phone kiosk inside the dover mall. a neighbor was shocked to learn he allegedly planned to join isis. >> he could have reached out to anybody, you know, if you're not -- if you're a troubled youth, or somebody looking to fit in somewhere you know, he could easily fall into the minds and the trap that they offer to be your friend, they offer to give awe better life, they over you something that you might be
missing in your heart than can appeal to anybody. so we got to be careful about thing like that. >> now, records show he also operated the kiosk in philadelphia, but authorities have not said where. >> now the revelations commas we learn new details about the man behind the mask in the isis terror videos. as we first told you yesterday morning, on "eyewitness news" us officials say muhammad amwazi known as jihad john, in the beheading videos of american hostages, 27 year old college graduate grew up in london. anti-terror officials began watching him when he traveled to east africa in 2009. in 2012 ace period from london resurfaced with isis in syria. >> meanwhile the parent of one of emwazi hostages, is speaking out. diane and john foley say the is government failed them while their son was being held captive. they spoke at the university of arizona last night. >> we really feel that our
government needs to have a clearer policy, and be more up front about what they can and cannot do or will and will not do. we felt we were in the dark a lot. >> foley family also says they are developing a foundation that pushes for policies to help american citizens held captive world-wide. >> the clock is ticking for congress to pass a bill funding the department of homeland security. the current spending measure expires at midnight tonight. thursday house republicans agreed push forward a short-term bill without language reversing president obama's executive action on immigration. if approved, the measure would then go to the senate for final passage. and would push the shut-down off until march. >> the discovery of racist graffiti inside main line high school prompts swift frost administrators. yesterday school officials address the entire student body at radnor high school in a general assembly. day earlier, someone found racist graffiti scrolled on

fizzle somewhat. and then we'll see the next large storm actually develop. soap, that means, we stay pretty quiet today tomorrow, come sunday see new storm moving on n so upper 20's today, upper 20's, tomorrow, we wrap up the month with temperatures that are 20 degrees below average. what else is new at this point, right? then we come into sunday, that's when we will actually see temperatures rebound. so upper 30s by this point looks like mainly the p.m. hours start to see this wintery mix take place hereof some rain, some sleet and snow. here's where we stand right now once more for you. mid 20's, teens even lower teens, or single digits, all depending on location, how much cloud you have. but it is still cold start to the day. we only get to you 29 this afternoon, into tonight under a generally clear sky. we bottom out to 12 degrees, and that means actually going have a chance to flirt with record low territory not just in philly but a lot of other locations, too see how we do. meanwhile 27 degrees tomorrow's high. solid 20 below the average. looking ahead sunday into monday morning p.m. hours of sunday so, that's why you have got the wintery mixon
